In a new blank project using the Master-Detail Xamarin.Forms template, the Android project renders with a light grey background and dark grey text. I'm trying to change that to a pure white background and pure black text by customizing the Theme.AppCompat.Light.DarkActionBar theme. The template has a style named MainTheme.Base where attributes such as colorPrimary can be used to change the app bar color, etc.
I'm following the documentation for Xamarin.Android / User Interface / Material Theme and it says "Add color customizations to styles.xml by defining the colors of layout attributes that you want to change. "
Where can I find a complete list of those layout attributes, or, which ones correspond to the background and text color? I tried this:
<item name="android:background">@color/white</item> but that also made the text background in the app bar white, so is there a separate attribute I need to change that back to my
<item name="android:windowBackground">@color/white</item> didn't make any changes that I could see.
Thanks for any assistance you can provide.
